Presenting the Festival of Science & Curiosity 2017

January 24, 2017

Preparations are well under way for Nottingham's third annual Festival of Science and Curiosity. This year, Ignite! is working in cooperation with a whole host of organisations and venues across the city to bring a variety of curiosity-piquing events to the people of Nottingham!

 

Here's a selection of the events we're especially excited about:

 

 

Sound and Vision 

THiNK, Cobden Chambers

Friday 10th Feb 7-9.30pm

Free

 

As part of Nottingham's tenth annual Light Night, THiNK will host psychedelic workshops in tribute to Brian Eno and David Bowie. There will be the chance to make your own lava lamps/snow-globes and we're currently experimenting with some other light-inspired demonstrations!

 

 

 

 

Explorers Fair

Broadway Cinema

Saturday 11th Feb 10am-5pm

Under 16s £4.50 (Accompanying adults go free)

 

This year Hasmita has been working with Broadway Cinema's artist development programme Near Now to curate the first ever Explorers Fair - a day of discovery where children can try the latest gadgets, be inspired by artists, scientists and inventors and get hands-on with exciting experiments and workshops.

 

 

 

 

Family Saturday

Various Locations

Saturday 11th Feb 9am-5pm

Free

 

Events will be taking place all over the city to engage people with STEM subjects. The University of Nottingham Pathology Department will be taking over Broadmarsh, worms will be taking over the National Videogame Arcade and demonstrations will be happening at Central Library.

 

 

 

 

Algorave

Rough Trade

Sunday 12th Feb 3-9pm

£5 OTD

 

Rough Trade is hosting an algorave, which means the music and visuals will be produced using algorithms and live-coding! This international music movement combines creativity and technology and we can't wait to see/hear the results!

 

 

 

 

And, of course, look out for science busking that will be happening all over the city!

 

 

Details of the full Festival line-up will be announced shortly.
